Micky P Kerr
Leeds-based comedian Micky P Kerr shot to fame earlier this year when he appeared on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, winning over the judges and crowd with his Yorkshire-charm and blend of music and comedy. After making it all the way to the Final (and explaining to the nation his loathing for Andy Murray's mum) Micky’s star continues to shine bright in front of his biggest fans of all, his pupils at Harehills Primary School.
A proper Yorkshire man and a proper funny guy rolled into one, Zack Stevens has been on the comedy scene for several years and is always guaranteed to have the audiences laughing from start to finish. Described by some as a zany comedian, Zack’s high energy performance and lovable nature is sure to be a hit for all in attendance.
An award winning new comedian from Yorkshire who has made a name for herself with hilarious impressions, an impeccable wit and razor-sharp one-liners, Steff Todd is a name you will definitely be hearing more of in years to come. Having supported a number of comedians in recent years including Lee Nelson and Dave Gorman, Steff is now ready to go at it alone with her debut solo show currently in development.
Host: Pete Emmett
Rounding off our full-Yorkshire cast for the evening, our host Pete Emmett brings with him his unique humour which has seen him make rapid strides on the comedy circuit over the past few years. Having worked alongside the likes of Johnny Vegas, Mike Tyson, Dame Kelly Holmes and Sugar Ray Leonard in recent years, Pete will be very much at home orchestrating the proceedings of the night’s entertainment.
